Egon Schiele – lithograph of Arnold Schönberg

  • Upper Theatre, Sherwell Centre, University of Plymouth, PL4 8AA

Save event

Art historian Dr Deborah Lewer and pianist Dr Robert Taub will discuss and illuminate the fertile – and often febrile – intersection of music and visual art that motivates Expressionism.

How did Wagner’s Tristan chord change music forever? How did Kirchner’s brief but emotionally charged time in the military influence his paintings? How did Scriabin’s synesthesia influence his music? Did Schönberg’s experiences with painting influence his music? And how did Schönberg’s music influence the works of Egon Schiele?

Join us for a fascinating evening of visual art and music.

This event is part of The Arts Institute festival, Expressionism: Emotions Unchained.

Our festival offers a unique integration of pivotal music, visual art, and film of this energetic and vibrant artistic era of unbounded influence. Join us for four extraordinary evenings with world-leading artists.

In addition to this talk, for the fullest experience of the festival please also consider the opening concert on Saturday 12 March featuring pivotal works of Scriabin and Schönberg, the screening of Metropolis on Monday 14 March, and the concert on Saturday 19 March featuring three extraordinary string quartets performed by world-class musicians.

Expressionism: Emotions Unchained

Expressionism is one of the most intense and influential movements in art. Its defining characteristic is the artistic interpretation of the emotions that arise from experiencing daily realities, rather than a portrayal of the realities themselves.

Our festival Expressionism: Emotions Unchained offers a unique integration of pivotal music, visual art, and film of this energetic and vibrant artistic era of unbounded influence. You are invited to join us for four extraordinary evenings with world-leading artists.
